I hope I'm posting this in the right area and not stepping on anyone's toes...

So myself and a friend have been working on a server tracker for Jedi Academy, and Urban Terror support has been added. With it you can put the status of any UT server on your website. This is NOT a for-profit tracker - everything is open-source, free, and has no ads.

If anyone is interested, you can find it at:
http://paratracker.dogi.us

Here's a sample of it in action (I'm still taking screenshots for the maps):
http://paratracker.d...nableGeoIP=true

If you would like screenshots added for a particular map, there is a place to request them in the utilities.

Have fun if you choose to use it. :D

No need for screenshots. You can come here. https://fallin-angel...tmaps/index.php

And right click mouse/view image and save.

Also I would like to point out that you are showing our CTF server.. But Game Type is showing as "BombMode"

Hah.. Nice touch though on the slide show for screen shots.. It's working very well for "GhostTown" :)

Ah, thank you. I already took a bunch of my own for what seemed to be the most commonly played ones, but that will help for sure.

Good job for the game tracker, looks nice!

I've added it to our non exhaustive (and poorly maintained) Open Source Tools list.

Whoops. I found the game types with a Google search. Obviously i was wrong, then. XD

Edit: Should be fixed now.

Okay, I downloaded all the screenshots. Before we use these, I have to double-check - who would I need to ask for permission to add these to GitHub? In my eyes, it can only benefit the community to do so, but at the same time, I don't want to anger someone by taking their stuff. If the answer is no, I can easily just put them online without adding them to GitHub.

Most of the old map makers are not around any more to ask permission, but I'm sure using screenshots is probably not a problem with any of them. I uploaded lots of screenshots for gametracker.com over the years and never have had a problem. Who wouldn't want "free advertisment" for their map? Posted Image

Agreed. The Jedi Academy community has the same issue.

I should clarify two things: first, if I were to upload the images to GitHub, they would be under MIT license with the tracker. Some people would view that as theft, and I don't want to cause a scene.

Second, are these the loading images from the maps, or screenshots that were taken by others? If they're loading images taken by the authors, I'm a lot more likely to do it, simply from the "Free advertising" perspective.


Also, someone requested screenshots for a map named angelo - the only thing I can find is angelofdeath. Is there a map somewhere named angelo?

Screenshots from official maps, bundled in the game, are more than welcome to be shared and used. Just mention somewhere that they are from the game Urban Terror.

Regarding Angelo, never heard of such a map. Keep us informed if it actually exists ;)

Angelo? Pretty sure he might mean angelofdeath which is in the |FA| library.
